Visit Positano, Sorrento and Pompeii from Naples

This Naples port tour will be conducted by car, van or small mini-coaches, giving you the opportunity to reach Positano, where large coaches are not permitted, and allowing time to see the most important sights that characterize the Gulf of Naples. Known as one of the most spectacular scenic roads anywhere, the Amalfi Drive is a favorite destination for countless visitors. Departing from the pier with your professionally-trained guide, you will leave Naples and pass Mount Vesuvius before turning south and passing through the mountains to the Amalfi Coast. Your drive along this narrow and exhilarating road will reward you with photo opportunities around every corner.

Further along the coast, you will reach Positano, where a picture postcard comes to life. A patchwork of flat and domed roofs and vine-covered stairways tumble down to meet the gentle curve of beach, dotted with brightly colored fishing boats. Enjoy time at leisure to explore this elegant spot with its designer boutiques, shops, and seaside cafes. Groups of more than 12 guests will need to transfer to a smaller vehicle for the trip from the Amalfi Drive down into Positano due to the narrow roads. Positano is predominately pedestrian with many steps and inclines.

The next stop is the fabled town of Sorrento. Legend tells us it was the "sirens" of Sorrento who attempted to lure Ulysses onto the rocks. This delightful town has a wonderful climate and marvelous views of Naples Bay. Take a stroll around the main square and explore the side streets. There are many souvenir shops and local specialties including articles of highly polished wood inlaid with beautiful marquetry. You will see first-hand why its delightful climate makes the village a favorite Mediterranean resort.

Lunch will be taken near Pompeii. After lunch, you will proceed to the old City where one of the ancient world's worst disasters preserved time. You will tour Pompeii, where you will see life as it was lived in 79 AD. Once a thriving empire, it was devastated by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius when 30 feet of volcanic ash and pumice stone covered the city. As you enter Pompeii by one of its ancient Gates, a short walk takes you to the city's hub, the Forum. Surrounded by lavish temples and porticoes, you will begin to grasp the lifestyle of the inhabitants. Admire the mansions and the art of wealthy patricians who moved to Pompeii to escape the turmoil of Rome; view countless paintings and inscriptions. See the streets with raised pavements on both sides and the stepping-stones that ensured pedestrians a safe crossing at intersections. After your visit to Pompeii, you will return to Naples.

Please Note: Vehicles available for this tour accommodate groups of up to 16 guests maximum. Groups with more than 16 guests will need to book multiple vehicles. Please take this information into consideration when booking. Due to the narrow streets in Positano, groups larger than 12 will need to take a shuttle from the Amalfi Drive down to the town and back.

Best Tour of our Trip!!
August 13, 2018
Just returned from a 12-day trip and this tour was, hands-down, the best day of our entire vacation! Our guide, Susie, was FANTASTIC and kept our kids (ages 16,12,12,&11) entertained and engaged. We hit a few hiccups beyond our control (record-breaking heat and some of the worst traffic our driver had ever seen in Naples) but Susie did everything humanly possible to keep the day fun for all of us and we still got to see everything promised. Lunch provided was outstanding! As seasoned travellers, all of us agree that it was the best tour we have ever taken! Cannot rate this tour or our guide and driver high enough! I would definitely recommend it!!

Debbi, our tour guide was fantastic. Easy to relate to and so good with my shy 17 year old son. This was an unforgettable day for myself and my teenage son: full of information and anecdotes along with plenty of time for us to take all of the photos of the incredible scenery. If you can swing it, do the private tour, and request Debbi as your guide. You won't regret it!

Beautiful Amalfi & Pompei
August 18, 2016
We covered so much ground in just one day. Our guide Tania had such great local knowledge. We loved Positano more than Sorrento, so maybe allow for a bit more time there. Pompei was amazing & our lunch was very good. Driver did not speak English, but he was a great driver!

Amalfi exeprience

I felt very hurried. honestly skip the lunch cause it was just okay. I would have liked to have lunch in Serremto and definitely more time. The tour guide for the Amalfi coast and Serrento was extremely nice and knowledgeable.

Beautiful views of the coast

Our guide and driver were very nice and informative. The drive to Positano (our first stop) was gorgeous. Our driver stopped for several photo ops - which was great. Positano is a quaint town and thoroughly enjoyed our walk through it - trying some of the Italian desserts at a local bakery. Sorrento, in comparison was a much bigger town, but it was a good place to get souvenirs. Lunch was at a nice restaurant in Pompeii. We walked across the street to the ruins. We stopped at the Cameo factory which was a big disappointment. I would recommend skipping it and spend more time at the ruins. There is a lot to see there and we did not get to see it all due to time constraints.
